Email addresses

We've designed Abstract accounts to help make it easy to maintain one single account and login. Add secondary email addresses to your account to access multiple organizations.

Email addresses associated with your account are private and not available for reference by other Administrators, Members, or Guests of organizations.

Add a Secondary Email Address

Adding secondary email addresses is helpful, particularly when you are working with multiple organizations or if you may change roles and move to a new company. Secondary email addresses help you maintain access to a single Abstract account.

To add a secondary email address:

  1. From the upper-right corner of Abstract on web or desktop, select the menu at appears as your name.
  2. Click Personal Settings > Email Addresses.
  3. Click Add Email.

Once you've added a secondary email address, you'll see a ••• appear beside it on this screen. Use that menu to resend the confirmation email, remove the email, or set the primary email. It is not possible to remove an email address if you have only one email address associated with your account.

Organizations

Use Personal Settings to reference organizations you belong to or to remove them from your account.

You may also reference organizations you belong to by selecting the organization name from the titlebar of Abstract on desktop; a menu will appear and you may select an organization name from the last to change dashboards.

To remove an organization from your account:

  1. From the upper-right corner of Abstract on web or desktop, select the menu at appears as your name.
  2. Click Personal Settings > Organizations.
  3. Click ••• > Remove Organization.

You may be prompted to hand-off organization administration or to delete an organization if you are an Administrator for the organization you are trying to remove.

Passwords

Passwords may be updated from your Personal Settings.

To change your password:

  1. From the upper-right corner of Abstract on web or desktop, select the menu at appears as your name.
  2. Click Personal Settings > Change Password.
  3. Enter your current password and the new password you'd like to use.

Passwords may also be reset via the traditional password reset process via the login screen.

If you do not have access to your Abstract account or to the email account you need to reset a password, the Abstract Support team will not be able to grant you access to your account. To prepare for a scenario where you may need to reset a password, add a secondary email address to your account.

Notifications

Notification settings are adjustable from the Personal Settings in your Abstract account, as well. Currently, you may manage notifications from Abstract about changes or updates in Abstract or about announcements and promotions from Abstract.
